FORT LEE, Va. – Service members and their families interested in saving money while living a healthier lifestyle are encouraged to attend the Defense Commissary Agency’s Health & Wellness Expo, April 28-29, 3-5 pm, at select locations.

“This event is growing by leaps and bounds,” said Marine Sgt. Maj. Michael Saucedo, senior enlisted advisor to the DeCA director. “The expo is just one more example of how commissioners are supporting the health and nutritional needs of our patrons.”

Fifty stateside commissioners are participating in the expo, up from the last five years. Eventually, DeCA hopes to offer the expo at all stores. Patrons are encouraged to check the Health and Expo webpage (https://blog.mymilitarysavings.com/dont-miss-the-commissary-health-wellness-expo/) or the schedule below to see if their store is participating. They should also check their commissary webpage (https://www.commissaries.com/shopping/store-locations) or talk to their store manager for more details or updates. The expo will feature something for everyone – prizes, coupons and samples.

In connection with this event, through April 30, eligible commissioner customers worldwide can enter a sweepstakes for a chance to be one of 20 winners of a $100 Commissary Gift Card. Check https://www.mymilitarysavings.com/brands/commissary-health-and-wellness-expo for more details.

“We deliver a savings benefit to service members who are charged with being physically fit,” Saucedo added. “At DeCA, we never lose sight of that as we aim to be the military community’s grocer of choice.”
